SonarQube server installation
On the SonarQube side, just copy the sonar-pitest-plugin jar to the extensions/plugins directory just like any regular SonarQube plugin.
Since mutation testing is not (yet) officially supported by SonarQube, this plugin acts as a "single rule" rule engine... This rule, named "Survived mutant", is disabled by default and hence needs to be activated when pitest is used.
